There are a lot of ways to boil water. Nuclear energy does it without emitting as much carbon as coal, oil or gas. In the search for safer and more efficient nuclear technology, Oregon State University operates one of the few nuclear reactors on a college campus in the United States.
A new production by GreenScienceOregon (an environmental science TV show sponsored by OSU, Portland State University, Solar World and Oregon BEST) delves into OSU research on passively safe, modular nuclear technology. Producer Rick Coyle interviewed OSU researchers Brian Woods, Alex Brown and David Bytwerk as well as Tom Marcille of NuScale Power, an OSU spinoff company.
